Don’t Lose Hope Living Under Obama (or Romney)

Conservatives are getting disillusioned. The Republican candidates are not inspiring a majority of voters. The candidates are attacking one another rather than the real target – the Marxist policies of Barack Obama. The one good thing about the wrangling is that it’s making Mitt Romney sound more conservative. He’s taking more conservative positions in order to lure people to his side.

Homosexuals stole the word “gay” and the rainbow, but don’t let Obama steal hope. It’s time to deal with reality.

Newt Gingrich is just not likeable. I’m sorry, but likeability is a big deal in politics, especially when it comes to people who know very little about the issues. Female voters bolted from Gingrich in Florida. That’s a bad sign.

Santorum does not come across as presidential. He may be a nice guy and have a great story, but some of his votes as a Senator and support of Arlen Specter against Pat Toomey in the 2004 Pennsylvania Senate race are huge problems for conservatives.

Ron Paul has a loyal and enthusiastic following. He’s right on most of the issues, more right than the other GOPers are. America is not ready for legalized drugs and a hands-off policy in the Middle East, as much as he may be right on these issues.

So then, where does that leave us? Unless something unpredictable happens, it’s going to be Romney against Obama in November. Here’s the question: Is the “Anybody but Obama” vote enough to defeat America’s first Marxist president? And if Romney is the next president, how much will things really change?

We can never give up or give in. We’ve had some setbacks. The changes we need to see are going to take time. Creeping Marxism has been going on for a long time. There are too many beneficiaries of government, both on the Left and the right. Establishment Republicans want to control the purse strings. Their policies will take longer to bankrupt us.

Four more years of Obama will not spell the end of America. Things may get bad, very bad, but it won’t be the end. There’s a history of destructive regimes that did not result in the end of civilization as we know it.

It’s what we do in the meantime that will make the difference. House and Senate seats are as important as the presidency. Now is the time to prepare. Liberals are already making preparations to defeat a number of TEA Party Republicans in November. What are we doing? We can’t depend on the Republican Establishment to pitch in. It’s up to us.

There’s a new Gallup projection that argues “if President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215.” Sounds encouraging, but don’t depend on it.”

It’s not that I’m dismissing Mark Styn’s After America: Get Ready for Armageddon or Pat Buchanan’s Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?  Things look bad, but they’ve been bad before. “Stand your ground,” Lionel Barrymore says as he goes after gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson) in Key Largo. I’ll add . . . “and build on it.” We’re working on a “County Government” project. The key to national transformation is from the bottom up. It’s got to start with us, our families, churches, businesses, and local government. Jan Brewer showed us the way. Obama is our president who has limited constitutional powers; he’s not a king.

Get out of debt. Get your kids out of government schools. Save more money. Have more children and vote the bums out. If you’re interested, take a look at my book God and Government: A Biblical, Historical, and Constitutional Study.
